I wanted to make myself a circle skirt too. I need something less than humdrum for a wedding a nice young couple have invited me to.
I found some cloud grey taffeta at the local car boot sale. There's enough for a skirt and if I'm very careful, a sleeveless blouse.
This is what I ended up with.

|some goldy coloured binding|
|5 1/2 meters of it!|
|no finish on seams, just used selvedges|
|I love my new skirt! Yes, it is a bit big so I'm going to insert elastic into the waistband|
I'm going to go all 50s and make a sticky out petticoat. Or I could wait till my sister brings the one she bought for me.
